problem. black caucus said we don't have entitlement problem. leave entitlements alone. nancy pelosi says we still have a revenue problem. don't leave the tax hikes alone. what is amazing these guys don't address a problem. this weekend we get ready to essentially coronate a president, there is no evidence anywhere among anyone in washington they even see a problem. nowhere in any of the inaugural events is so much as passing bought of spending period. more like a four-day spending palooza, celebrates wonder of government and those that benefit from the government the woman who has a job thanks to the auto rescue. the dad's whose family is protecting thanks to the health care law. i think you get the point. austerity isn't the point. more government is. this inaugural weekend is all about a blueprint for revving it up. the white house says it is low-keying the inaugural festivities because of economy, somehow cutting yourself down to two presidential balls doesn't exactly strike me as sacrifice, as much as a slap in the taxpayer's face. to joe perry, marco and chris. not exactly partying.
for nancy pelosi. lou: we are out of time. we have a hard break coming. >> sure. lou: i love talking to you, conk #* congressman, or listening, but we have a hard out. is this debt deal being proposed now to vote on wednesday, it looks like, are youssef mejri going to support it? will it prevail? will it work? >> not without spending cuts. not without a balanced budget amendment, something more than kicking the can down the road. lou: oh, sounds like we slipped back a ways there. congressman, good talking with you. appreciate it. come back soon, and we'll follow your progress. >> thank you. lou: congressman, one of the terrific folks on capitol hill. no to the weekend box office. it was dominated by movies featuring actress jessica chastain, the horror film "mama," sorry to laugh, but it's a film named "mama," brought in $28.5 million. who -- i mean, you can't argue wi the market, can you? she also took second place with "zero dark thirty" taking in $16 million. i think you might consider, if you are making a movie, jessica to be featured prominently. the "silver linings playbook" third wit
'm hearing talks that nancy pelosi and others are not done taxes, but want to move after the rich more, climbing over 50% is not a big leap, and leaving it just to the rich and thinking that the rest will not be affected -- >> right. neil: there's a lot more to come. >> right, and, you know, looking at the democrats' plan and the president's plan for spending over the next ten years, we know they want to tax the rich more. they want to take that rate up to 50% or so of the richest income. there's just not enough money there. they can't pay for these explosive spending levels that they foresee for the next ten years, so it's right in the sense they are going to come off new taxpayers if they can't bleed the rich anymore to fund big government, but the benefit of having the fiscal cliff behind us is that the argument is not about taxes. now we're talking about spending. republicans, leader mcconnell on the hill, speaker boehner say we're done. we solved the problem of baselines that are flux waiting every two years, we know where we are on the revenue side, and now all the fights need to
house minority leader nancy pelosi saying: >> so the republicans are taking the debt ceiling debate moving it off a few months perhaps take place in april or may so they can focus on the automatic spending cuts set to hit the budget at the end of february those are known as sequester and also government discretionary spending authority that runs out in march. plenty of budget fights and it looks like we will be having them just about every couple of months all the way through the spring. david: as long as you are in williams burg virginia what do you care? it is a lovely place to be right now this time of year. rich: yes and the wind has died down and the snow is melting. it's a nice place. david: thanks rich. liz: we will find out what a representative thinks about the debt ceiling bill that will hit the floor next week and find out why she's calling for congress to get rid of the debt ceiling all together. david: also, all the fighting in d.c. could create a big opportunity for you the investor. find out exactly how you can trade the debt ceiling a little later this hour. it will
it is a mess and we have to fix it. when you hear people like nancy pelosi saying the fiscal cliff was not enough on the revenue side. you hear, you know, many politicians chiming in. howard dean, for example, saying in december that the truth is everybody needs to pay more taxes. we're not going to get out of this deficit problem unless we raise taxes across the board. the rich can't solve the problem. i guess that is where i'm going with this is, it seems like, especially from what you're saying susan, everyone will have to pay more taxes to get out of this. >> i actually don't agree with that point. i don't agree with howard dean either. we're not looking more middle class tax increases. the president has been pretty firm on that. we're looking closing coorate loopholes. some people are starting to talk about high frequent financial transaction tax for people that are trading for less than a minute in a position. melissa: none of that will get us there. >> that could raise $350 billion, if you add that with tax cuts could get 1.2 the president is talking about. there are some me
